The governor in a statement signed on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita, said the death of the lawmaker was a “loss so painful to bear.”
“Mr Nkoro’s demise leaves a sour taste in my mouth and ache in my heart. But then, we cannot question God, Him and only Him alone has prerogative over life.
“However, as a human, my heart is heavy, filled with sorrow. I agnoise and mourn this death”.
While decrying that the late lawmaker departed at a time his service to the state was most needed, Ayade described him as “a dedicated lawmaker.

He said that the late lawamaker was a consumate politician, a team player and loyal partyman, whose death is a huge loss to the people and government of Cross River.
The governor offered his heartfelt condolences to Nkoro-Egbung’s family, colleagues and constituency.

He prayed God to grant them the strength to bear the irreplaceable loss, saying “we are together with you in prayers in this moment of unspeakable sadness”.

He died at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital on Sunday Aug. 26, after a brief sickness.
